Harass your sales rep. After all, you're the customer and paying them big $$$. Having said that, ordering and buying the car is the car is the honeymoon, and it's the marriage (ownership and maintenance) that needs to work for you. So start building the relationship with the sales reps and others within the dealership. Even if you screw up they will help.
I have a very good relationship with the dealership and BMW Australia.
So went and spoke with the sale rep and also meet the person that does the vehicle ordering and tracking today. Both extermely helpful, and they have already sent the first update. Production booked for Wednesday next week.
They are going to email be updates and they occur.
